The Month (and the Quilt Show) That Was

When I started this idea of a daily post each day in June with quilts from Fiber Arts Fiesta, I wondered if I there were enough of the quilts I loved to share all month long ... it turns out I ran out of month before I ran out of quilt favorites.

Judith Roderick is a silk painter who makes fantastic silk quilts (with lots of buttons!). This is her quilt, Two Creatures, the winner in the large art quilt category.

Judith's description from the program says, "This playful quilt was a dance between black silk and over-dyed hand-painted silks, richly embellished.

Here is a closer look at some of the wonderful details.

Judith Roderick also had a special exhibit at the show - here are a few of the quilts found there.

Although the month is ended, I just might HAVE to share more photos of Judith's work in July after I am moved and settled into my place.

I've been a fan of Judith's work since I attended my first Fiber Arts Fiesta after moving to Willard. It was wonderful to see so much of her work altogether. I especially like that her work frequently features birds. You don't have to quit showing the quilts just because the month is ending. I've really enjoyed this! Keep up the good work!

Don't feel you have to stop just because the month is over..............I have really enjoyed all your posts and comments on the quilts in the show. I hope your move goes well and that you and the kitties enjoy the new place.
